Advantages of ConCarbo carbon fiber tailpieces

Using carbon fiber composite as material for string instrument tailpieces gives many advantages, but there are 3 most important of them.

Resonance conductivity

High resonance conductivity of carbon makes it an excellent material for crafting tailpieces. It transfers resonance from string to body through tail gut.  Combined with low weight carbon fiber composite, it minimizes sound loss in the tailpiece. As a result, the sound of the instrument becomes more powerful, louder, richer and has faster response.

Light weight

Carbon fiber has 2 – 5 times more strength to weight ratio than aluminum and steel. This feature makes products made of carbon absorb resonance much less.  The lightweight tailpiece allows string after bridge to vibrate more freely. Combined with high resonance conductivity of carbon fiber composite, it minimizes sound loss in the tailpiece.


Carbon is strong material, unlike wood, is not prone to cracks and chips. Not sensitive to changes of temperature and humidity. Due to the special structure and direction of carbon fiber fibers, the tailpiece has elasticity at diagonal loads, but high hardness under longitudinal loads, which is important for this part.

Fine tuners options

For now we offer 2 fine tuner options.

– Without fine tuners.

Some musicians use planetary geared tuning pegs, or do not use fine tuners at all. Every fine tuner absorbs some resonance more or less, that’s why this option is most effective  for resonance conductivity.

We offer our extra low weight and resonance conducting fine tuners made of carbon and titanium. Learn more…
